Flash Nonfiction Food
Fresh off the success of Flash Nonfiction Funny comes a piping-hot new take on the flash genre: Food. Working within a 750-word limit, each of these nonfiction pieces is driven by a hunger for something filling. Memories of an ill-fated birthday cake, contemplations on a family recipe, an embarrassing sauce spill on a first date — all of it true, all of it tasty. Featuring both established and up-and-coming writers, this collection is perfect for students of writing and brevity — and for anybody who appreciates good food!
Featuring essays by Dinty W. Moore, Kim Addonizio, Sarah Wesley Lemire, Stephen Goff, Mark Lewandowski, Alison Townsend, Jesse Waters, Elizabeth Danek, Jonathan Ammons, Leeanna Torres, Eric D. Lehman, Sari Fordham, Renee Cohen, Brian Phillip Whalen, Rebecca Beardsall, Pamela Felcher, Lisa Romeo, Amy Barnes, Ann Fisher-Wirth, Dale Bell, Nancy Naomi Carlson, Sonya Huber, Kim Dana Kupperman, Margaret Luongo, Stanley Plumly, Eleanor W. Traylor, Lesley Wheeler, Nancy White, Kathi Wolfe, Baron Wormser, and many more!
